If you’re planning a trip to Uganda to track gorillas, one of the most important things you’ll need to do is book a permit. Gorilla permits are issued by the respective wildlife authorities and are limited in number to protect the gorillas and their habitat.

Booking Gorilla Permits in Uganda is a straightforward process. In this article, we’ll walk you through the process of booking gorilla permits in Uganda and Rwanda

The Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) is responsible for issuing gorilla permits in Uganda. Here are the steps you need to follow to book a gorilla permit in Uganda:

  1. Choose a Tour Operator: To book a gorilla permit in Uganda, you’ll need to go through a registered tour operator. There are many tour operators in Uganda that offer gorilla tracking packages, so do your research and choose one that meets your needs and budget.

  2. Contact the Tour Operator: Once you’ve chosen a tour operator, you’ll need to contact them to inquire about availability and pricing for the gorilla permits. You’ll need to provide the date you want to track the gorillas, the number of permits you need, and the names of the people who will be tracking the gorillas.

  3. Pay for the Permit: If the tour operator confirms that the permits are available on your preferred date, you’ll need to pay for the permit in advance. The cost of a gorilla permit in Uganda is $700 per person.

  4. Receive Confirmation: Once you’ve paid for the permit, the tour operator will provide you with a confirmation letter that you’ll need to present when you pick up the permit at the UWA offices in Kampala or at the park headquarters in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park.
